I was not disappointed because it had been so long since I'd read the first two that the experience was like reading them for the first time after having dreamed parts of them. We have here a very young boy, from an influential Chinese clan, being raised in the Taoist traditions high atop one of China's sacred mountains. You can actually see this place in its modern incarnation on Youtube these days, with vids of the brave foreign trekkers who risk their lives on some of the rugged and hairy catwalks and toe-hold stepways that meander along the sheer, high cliffs.
Peppered with Taoist philosophy, this work also presents captivating and informative views of China just prior to, during, and after its glorious revolution, all wrapped around an attention-holding story line and much information regarding certain here-to-for obscure Taoist practices, and even a decades-old, veiled reference to the NWO End Game (coming soon?) to the effect that "someday there will be powerful events that shake up the entire world, and you will pay a part in it," or similar wording.
For the Western spoil-sport skeptic(k) type who must always allow his super ego to horn in and ask, "is it real," rest assured that "it REALly doesn't matter; now be a good boy and run along to read this book" :-)
I would recommend this book to anyone with an interest in Taoism, the beginner or advanced student. For me, it's my favorite way of learning about a subject-- through story. I can't imagine anyone not enjoying it. Not to sound too sappy, but this book has had a major impact on my life.
Er..Amazon, you have displayed the cover of this book UPSIDE DOWN! I do not recommend standing on your head to read this book.
